  • 6 Pieces Purple Corn Tortilla
  • 2 Cups Purple Cabbage, Chopped Thin
  • 1 Small Onion, Chopped Thin
  • 8 Ounces Chicken Breast Tenders, Boiled and Shredded
  • Fresh Salsa (my favorite is Trader Joe’s)


  1. Boil chicken breast until done, approximately 10 minutes and shred when cooled.  Chop cabbage and onion.  Warm tortillas over stove top.  Assemble tacos, adding chicken first. Top with salsa! You can also add avocado & cilantro.
